2018-19

An interval workout based on quantum mechanics sparks the idea for pace-tuned shoes. Scott Tucker and a group of scientists complete a study on the physics of running and pace. FastPod tech patent filed. Prototyping begins.

2020

Study data confirm advantage of pace-tuned shoes. Rocket-ship shoe design evolves. While other brands use their thumbs to test midsole density, Vimazi sets up proprietary testing equipment to ensure midsole densities meet precise specifications. Running in Circles published. RunCrush app released. Run testers race in early versions of the Vimazi Z30.

2021

Published research papers prove pace-tuned shoes are more efficient. Shoe design specs finalized. New Vimazi running kits arrive. Vimazi hosts 16 virtual races. CEO Scott Tucker breaks 3 hours at the London Marathon in a pair of Vimazi Z0s.

2022

Summer 2022: Vimazi releases four pace-tuned models. The Z20 and Z30 are released fall 2022, just in time for Marathon Major season. Pre-production continues on the pace-tuned Z90 walking shoe and two pace-tuned trail running shoes. Vimazi hosts 10 virtual races.

What's a pace-tuned running shoe?

A pace-tuned running shoe is a shoe in which the density of the midsole foam has been adjusted to react most efficiently to the forces you create while running within a specific pace zone. Pace-tuning is a way of personalizing performance and optimizing cushioning for every runner.

What are pace zones?

In running, a pace zone is a range of time, usually measured in minutes per mile or minutes per kilometer. Many runners try to run within a specific pace zone each day to optimize their training program. At...
